You are  right.  I am saying the root cause of the war was not slavery.   
The
root cause of secession was slavery.  The root cause of the war  was a 
desire
to preserve the Union.

That is exactly what you said in  your comment above, but you somehow
interpret it differently.

The  source for my interpretation is President Abraham Lincoln.
